I recently produced a track for a Linux music forum's challenge ( ), made from end to end on Linux with free softwares. You may freely listen to the resulting album (one track per contributer) there : Most of us use - ardour - lmms - audacity - musescore with many ladspa / vst plugins and instruments.

I've heard this is pretty good for Linux. And LMMS for midi

Just a quick tip for anyone interested in making single photo music videos in LINUX. - Choose audio file <audioname.extension> - Choose photo <imagename.extension> - In the terminal type: ffmpeg -loop 1 -i <imagename.extension> -i <audioname.extension> -c:v libx264 -tune stillimage -c:a aac -b:a 192k -pix_fmt yuv420p -strict -2 -shortest out.mp4 This will create a video file called out.mp4 The rendering time depends on the quality of the picture especially but I found it quite fast (~3minutes) although I used a laptop. I used it for my two latest collaborations and think the result was good. The sound is better on YouTube than on Facebook though. The two examples are here: PS: I used GIMP to edit the photos. GIMP is opensource and freely available :)

Mixed for fun with Harrison Mixbus and mostly OpenSource plugins on Ubuntu Linux 16.04 (and using my small consumer speakers): Did not come out too bad, considering the circumstances. :) The resources may be very limited, but it IS possible to do decent recording and mixing jobs using only software that runs natively on Linux.

Tracktion 6 is now available for free, However, it looks like a fairly cynical offer, with support only up to Ubuntu 12.04 and OSX 10.11. The reason for the freebie is they want you to buy Waveform (my Tracktion 3 license does not qualify me for an upgrade to Waveform which I think is a bit harsh). If you are interested in Waveform, make sure to check the Linux compatibility of the new features. Melodyne Essentials, for example, are not available as a Linux VST.

I've tried Linux for recording numerous times, even had a copy of that I tried to get working to no avail. At the end I managed to do some minor editing in Audacity which seemed to work fine. I did try openSuse and Ubuntu at the time. None of the DAWs seemed to work or install fine, installing ALSA and the audio drivers was also a nightmare. Might give it another shot, have an ageing Edirol and some old PCs that are for the scrap yard, just to see how it goes. Are there any freeware DAWs left on Linux? Last time I check I think most went $?

I've 'dabbled' in Linux and still consider myself a beginner on this platform. I'd like to learn more about what can be done audio-wise in Linux and keen to find out how well it compares to other DAW's on a Mac or PC.

Hi. I'm not a Linux user - yet - but I'm just going to hang out and see what's up :)
